    Default Rough string bed + repulsion?

    To those who love a rough string bed (e.g. Zymax series) + repulsion, what strings would you recommend?

    I've tried the Zymax 65 and Zymax 62 but wondering if there's anything else that would be in the same vein as those 2 strings. They offer good control but from what I feel, could offer better repulsion.

    Thoughts?

    Basically, what strings would you recommend would you recommend for players that love control but need repulsion when is needed.

    BG-85 suits very well. I find it has more grip than Z62, but not quite the repulsion.

    Zm62 already is the ultimate in grip and repulsion... seriously, I don't think there's any string better in these two aspects.

    What's the tension loss like?

    The best in tension retention.

    But... there's always a downside ... durability. Even then this can be minimized by stringing no more than 24lbs.

    Z62 is pretty much out on its own, and the only thing I can think of that's close to Z65 in terms of power and feel is a really obscure SOTX string called 1040Ti.

    Control and power... BG80 or 85 at medium tension, or VS850.
